StARS is first and foremost a collaborative programme delivered by a diverse network of colleagues across campus, but at the heart is a core programme team within the Innovation & Development division of Academic Services.

The Steering Group, Programme Board, and the Project Boards governing each project within the programme include representatives from across the University, including (but not limited to) Colleges, Registry, Student Services and IT Services. Each Board also has academic and student representation.
